Kyle Arthur Anthony. Nineteen. I love my family more than anything in the world. My dream is to be with my best friends singing my heart out and making music for the world to hear. The band I am so lucky to be in is called “Par!s”. I don’t take anything for granted. I am constantly trying to be the person I portray in my head. I am no where near perfect but pursue to be happy with who I am and how I live my life. Optimistic at heart. Scared of life. Confident that I will be successful and happy one day.
“It only happens if it doesn’t matter.”
“If you want to be happy, be.”
About my tattoos: Many people have asked me what my tattoos are of and what they mean, where they are, etc. So this is all you need to know.
Chest Piece: From my left shoulder to my right, “Be True. Be Faithful.” Written in script with a frame below it, center of sternum creates a heart. This was my first tattoo and means the world to me. The words are all about caring for and being loyal to the ones you love and yourself. Having self respect and also to stay humble all your life. No matter how much someone compliments you for this that or the other to always know you are nothing more than another human. I love my family and they mean the world to me. It is an ode to them as well of course. It is not religious whatsoever. The faithful is for having faith in yourself and what you want to do, who you want to be, and being determined to get there. The heart in the center of my chest is actually not just for show. It is to signify the importance of heart and ties in with the words. It is also the symbol for the Kingdom Hearts games. Which are my favorite of all time.
Hand: Left hand, outer pinky side. “honesty” written in script. I got this second, for sure spur of the moment tattoo. I love it so much though. In my opinion honesty is the most important human trait. Too many people in the world aren’t honest at all and I am proud to say I am not one of those people. Unless the topic is stupid and doesn’t matter I am completely honest. My morals are so high that I can’t possibly lie about important things. I think it is repulsive that people can lie and not feel guilt.
Left Forearm: directly below my elbow crease (ditch) “Deathly Hallows” The symbol from the Harry Potter series. A lot of people misjudge this one. I am aware tons of people have it but I am sure just like me, they all have it for their own reasons. I have mine for representing time and place, mind set and change. I do adore Harry Potter of course, that is a given. At the time I read the series it was my senior year summer going into college. I had been worried that I couldn’t finish things and stay determined when it comes to work and thought it would affect my life greatly. I somehow read the books very quickly and took time out of my day everyday to just read. I acted like they were more than books. I took them on as if they were work and got them done. The tattoo is a reminder that I can do whatever my mind sets itself to. That I have the determination to do anything I want in life. It is to remember the summer that my band Paris was starting to gain attention, the time before college where life changes and you have to make large choices on your own. Growing as an individual and being a real adult, just like Harry had.
Upper Outside Left Shoulder: My 4th tattoo. Dream catcher with Lion, Tiger, Lynx hybrid animal face centered in the main circle of the catcher. This one is about my brother and I. Growing up with a mother who was very spiritual my brother and I were strongly influenced by her. Spiritually the animals that make up the hybrid have the traits we share. He is an illustrator and drew the animal. I had my artist copy it down onto the dream catcher she had created herself. My brother has a seizure disorder and can’t get tattoos or it will induce more seizures. It is not just wonderful to have a tattoo to represent our bond but to have his art work on me makes me more than proud to be his brother.
